herself michele bachmann speaking to the council. the group will hear from the biggest name at this conference, republican presidential nominee paul ryan who is seen here yesterday on a brief return to his current job which is still on capitol hill. he's still got to be one of those voters on particular legislation. but today he's expected to really amp up those partisan attacks on president obama's foreign policy, especially with what's happening right now across the fwloeb and that brings me to my colleague wolf blitzer who is live with me in washington, d.c. i'm expecting he will echo what his running mate mitt romney has been doing refusing to back down on the harsh critic jims how obama and the administration is handling what's going on right now and particularly in a pointed interview with one of our colleagues in the media, george stephanopolous. >> this is what romney said. he's not apologizing at all for his initial or subsequent comments about how the obama administration handled the unrest both in cairo as well as in benghazi. listen to this. >> what i said was ex
on. >> where are all the conservatives like michele bachmann who have been running around for several years calling it obama care, socialism and everything else, government takeover, where are the conservatives? all of a sudden they are quiet. >> they may be squawking more in the days to come. susan said ryan was a bad pick, but for a bunch of reasons. one of them is that he wasn't chosen to stand for anything. when i was wrong, i was like we're going to have a real debate about two different directions for the country. paul ryan's budget, he believes these things. president obama believes different things. mitt romney is putting meat on the bones and we're going to have a real debate. >> i thought the same thing by the way. >> whether you liked it or not, it seemed like a strategy. but then to pick paul ryan and muzzle him, i thought ryan was more damaging to the ticket than romney was on the sunday shows because if you don't let him talk about what he believes, he was like sarah palin. gasping for air. he didn't have an answer if he's told to not to talk about what he believes. >> p
seats in the house are being challenged. michele bachmann swept into office in 2010 with a 13-point lead. now she's only two points ahead of her opponent. allen west, nine-point lead in 2010 has turned into a statistical dead heat in 2012. congressman steve king held an impressive 33% lead in 2010, is now down to single digits. is this a rejection of their ideas and could lead to the country moving away from this extreme right philosophy in terms of a takeover by politics in washington? >> yes, if as president obama said, because he was right when he said that real power is not here in washington, you don't change washington from the inside, it does mean that people from the outside, it's not just about who gets elected. that's very important. and then people outside of washington have to keep the pressure on their members of congress to hold them accountable for what they said they were going to do. when we've seen people do that over the course of the last couple of years, that's the only time we've actually ever seen congress act that or coming to a fiscal cliff and over a deadline. y
polish. this was the lead. if you remember when michelle bachmann was running there were photographs of the fat -- french nails if it was appropriate the way they were shaped. then nancy pelosi when she first became speaker there resists series of snapshots wearing pearls. nobody has ever done six types of necktie is. but what you wear can send a message but four men there quickly pushed aside. more casual or uptight but dianne feinstein has fine fashion taste early in her career headed tough time to get people to think she had any understanding of the problems of sand princess go because her attire screamed she was from a wealthy part of the city. heard tire was sending a message. >> what are the other key differences women face other than men? >> there are so many. [laughter] the fact a woman needs credentials of the highest caliber where a man who just comes on to the national scene perhaps just elected senator can be seen as presidential where she needs to be a governor. with keys to the governor's mansion it is not acceptable for women to just the elected from a senate decision.
. other speakers included michele bachmann, bob mcdonald of virginia, and rick santorum. santorum pointed out, with pride i might add, that a true values voter never lets facts or information get in the way of their gut instincts. >> we'll never have the media on our side, ever in this country. we will never have the elite, smart people on our side because they believe they should have the power to tell you what to do. >> right wing pundit gary bower riled up the crowd urging them to get out and vote. >> there will be a lot of people to vote for the president. there's a lot of people around america who depend on checks from their fellow taxpayers being in the mailbox every day. they will turn out in massive numbers. my prediction is after all the votes are counted, even the dead votes of democrats in chicago, detroit and cleveland, i predict that we will win. that this national nightmare will be over. >> let's turn to barry lynn, executive director of americans united for separation of church and state, who obviously was at that conference as an observer, not a participant, i might add. w
intelligence committee. please welcome michelle bachmann. [applause] good to see you and thank you for coming. >> thank you. good to be here with you. [applause] >> mike: congresswoman, the white house is blaming all of this on a movie trailer for a movie that no one has seen and trying to say that all of this violence was stird up because people saw a film. your thoughts, and what we are dealing with is a film? >> it is the excuse but we know what is happening since 2005. the pen muslim countries in the world had a plan for 10 years and want to force all of the rest of the world to be in compliance with their religious law. it is called sharia law and want nonmuslims to follow their laws and what i want people to know. we are not the problem. the problem are the islamics that are demanding we follow their religious laws. this is not being mean to muslim. we are not being mean to muslim. in this country we believe in religious tolerance. if you are a catholic or jew or muslim and hin did the it is a different view this has serious conquences. our state department agreed with something and pus
was joined on that stage today by michele bachmann, rand paul, steve king, tony perkins, a celebration of right-wing views out of the mainstream. anti-women, anti-immigrant, anti-gay. while paul ryan tried to under his views today, governor romney in the swing state of virginia, removing to restrict a woman's right to choose. the state up held regulations that could force many women's health clinics to shut their doors. these are the real values he stands for. just because he didn't say it doesn't mean he doesn't believe it. watch what they do, not just what they say. joining me now is frank schafer, columnist for "the huffington post" and author of crazy for god and washington correspondent for "the guardian." thanks for joining me. >> thank you. >> anna marie, let me start with you. paul ryan is hiding his views, it seems. you know, he didn't go into a lot of detail today but clearly being at this conference stating the views of his, let's say, the crowd of speakers that were with him, and what he's advocated before clearly is a very open confirmation of some of the most conservative
and that is why they are doing. michele bachmann the other day was criticizing president obama, ashleigh, for saying that obama can go to new york, and he can go to new york and has time for letterman, but he does not have time for benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel. and who is going to get you more votes? a tense meeting with benjamin netanyahu or go on letterman to get votes from that show? i think that the answer is cl r clear. >> the little box on the right-hand side of the screen is making news as well. i want to draw your attention, wolf, and the viewers to the box of the touchdown of the space shuttle "endeavour" flying this morning from kennedy space center making a stop for refueling and little as it goese final resting day in los angeles. this is the final trip, and the vistas are spectacular. we will take a break and talk more on the other side. one is for a clean, wedomestic energy future that puts us in control. our abundant natural gas is already saving us money, producing cleaner electricity, putting us to work here in america and supporting wind and solar.
bachmann or something. >> less the reporters you hear -- michele bachmann, santorum was up there, the gifts that keep on giving. >> bill: clarence, i have to ask you as the chief columnist for "the chicago tribune," one of many hats that you wear, the chicago teacher's strike is over. kids are back in school. who won that contest? >> i think in the short term, the teachers won. in the long run emanuel will. but this is a contest that, in my view, bill, had no winners. it just had losers which were the students because they lost over a week in the classroom that they sorely need. the problem is the city doesn't have any money. in fact, i've been -- i've been a journalist in chicago since 1969 under the original mayor daley, richard the first i have seen mayors come and go. one thing we all have in common is when the teachers want a new contract they go behind closed doors and the mayors give them whatever they want to try to avoid a strike. they used to have strikes so commonly that students would just expect them
. for the republican primary candidates, there were some that were higher than others. michelle bachmann, i think, had the highest. >> we had a self-imposed michelle bachmann " at some point during the debates. -- michelle bachmann quota during the debates. >> but again, i do not know what it tells you. it does provide something interesting to look at. it does provide links to every single fact check that i or my colleagues have done for all of the presidential candidates. >> george mason university. i think we have seen both candidates in a vulnerable position of being challenged on flip-flops' of position or permanence not kept. i have noticed so far that the tendency of both governor romney and president obama, when challenged by a voter or a journalist, is to not attempt to say, well, the facts have changed. the facts are different. the fact that i look at now are not the fact that existed when that was my belief. instead, there are various levels of equivocation and bluff. one recently was when president obama was, i think, talking to a latino group who challenged him on his failure to keep the p
michele bachmann and jim dement, ryan fired up the crowd when he took aim at the health care law mandate requiring insurers provide free family planning coverage including birth control. >> this is into the threat and insult to one religious group. it is a threat and insult to every religious group. when mitt romney is elected, we will get to work on day one to reappeal that mandate and all of p obamacare. >> i'm joined now by deputy political editor who was at that summit earlier. good afternoon to you. paul ryan helped to fire up the base no doubt. how does that kind of rhetoric play to the 1 million or so undecided voters most of whom we know are not socially conservative? >> we know the health care mandate is not very popular even with independents. but most people have also indicated that they want to move on after the supreme court ruling. and i'm not sure how much weight this really carries considering that mitt romney also strongly supported a mandate as part of his health care reform plan in massachusetts. >> they certainly were not in com any's corner during the primaries. what
, you had herman cain newt gingrich, and michele bachmann -- >> 49% of the country just won't latch on to it. >> it's like that bubble you talk about. they think their narrow view is everybody. >> john: this leads back to this paul ryan thing we have talked about fleetingly over the last few days. paul ryan made a statement in colorado last friday about medical marijuana. and congressman ryan said my personal position has been let the states decide what to do about these things. that is the paul ryan point of view. well, paul ryan said that, and right away mitt romney's people were doing damage control, and now saying that paul ryan -- >> he was high when he said it. [ laughter ] >> john: no, he completely agrees on keeping marijuana illegal, and people who smoke it even if they are sick and have cancer deserve to go to jail. and in the 2007 campaign we have a clip where a very sick man -- a fellow who was -- had cancer, in a wheelchair met governor romney at a campaign event, and asked him what he should do. governor romneys response was so callus and cowardly
and these fringe people were allowed to stay in the race so long that michelle bachmann wasn't chased out, it says that we all feel we're just saddled with this and when a bath mat should have been able to beat obama based on the polls and romney is looking like it's not it, i would be panicked more than just at the beginning of every month. i would never stop wearing depe depends. >> dave wood, beyond the strategy and the seeming lack thereof, the other thing i thought romney's comments betrayed were a really naive understanding of the arab world and also an incredibly vague foreign policy platform. rich whimson, romney's senior adviser on these matters gave an interview where he tried to outline some specifics and for me what that did was underscore how completely obscure and vague romney has been and how incapable he's been in terms of elucidating a foreign policy platform any way different from that of the president. >> yeah. i've talked to rich williams. he's a smart guy, but what bother med about this week was, the romney campaign's emphasis on returning to a strong america. and trying to po
with as well as working with michelle bachmann at the values voters weekend, what he had to say about us. >> we will never have the media on our side. ever in this country. we will never have the elite, smart people on our side. because they believe they should have the power to tell you what to do. >> what does he mean by the elite smart people? i think i should plead guilty. >> you are very smart, there's no doubt about that andrea. >> i don't know about that. just joking. >> i was at the speech and it was a wonderful speech but the overall message he was giving to conservatives was about the importance of conservatism and conservatives to rally together and without religion and without church and without families, there is no strong conservative movement. he was really reinforcing the need for conservatives and members of faith to come together. i would like to address a point that bill made in terms of foreign policy. what's pathetic is the current administration's foreign policy. what we have the situation going on now in the middle east, is the result of weakness from the obama administra
things that michele bachmann and mitt romney can't seem to understand is the difference between the public and private approaches of this president. in public he's been relational and engaging, seeking dialogue with islamic nations, but in private he's been ruthless and aggressive launching relentless drone strikes and pursuing al qaeda with a zeal that borders on the obsessional. as john kerry said at the convention, ask osama bin laden if he's better off now than four years ago. but mitt romney is not only blind to the present, he also seems ignore rabbit of the past. islamic anger and unrest has plagued virtually every president since jimmy carter whether republican or democrat. 241 american servicemen were killed in 1983 when the marine barracks in beirut was bombed and ron 23458d rald reagan was president. al qaeda launched their first attacks on america during the clinton presidency. of course, the horrific attacks of 9/11 came under the presidency of george w. bush. but if you listen to mitt romney, everything that is wrong in the world can be blamed on the current presid
it with jews. we saw it with communists even. the reason that people are making the claim that michele bachmann's anti-muslim witch-hunt in congress harks back to the day of joseph mccarthy because we've experienced the bouts of hate before. the real difference though today is that there is an active network of individuals that use tools like the internet to spread their venom in society and what they have effectively done is metastasized the social cancer growing among us. >> eliot: now part of the problem as you would see it is you have the voice of lee she wrote the cover story of "newsweek" this week from within the islamic community saying those who spread what you view as fearmongerring are what? there is a core kernel of violence in the religion. how do you respond to a voice like hers that is so powerful when people watch her? >> the "newsweek" cover was undoubtedly you know, terrible. and tina brown, folks at "newsweek" should be ashamed of themselves. asking ellie to write a cover story called muslim rage would
that peick was original ly snapped for a 2009 correspondent dinner. >> congresswoman michele bachmann, the presidential contender raised and spent more money than anybody else in the house. 16 million bucks in july alone. she is fighting democratic efforts to oust her from office. >>> coming up, how a 400 pound tiger at the bronx zoo ended up tearing into a man's back and arms. >>> also, guess who's come hat in hand looking for a loan? it's the guy that made a whole bunch of money when he was running for president. we'll tell you why. up next. you're watching msnbc. the place for politics. ♪ bob... oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks great. didn't realize they did photoshop here. hey, good call on those mugs. can't let 'em see what you're drinking. you know, i'm glad we're both running a nice, clean race. no need to get nasty. here's your "honk if you had an affair with taylor" yard sign. looks good.

. todd has worked closing with michelle bachmann, they pushes things that will harm missouri. on march 8, 2011, todd akin said i don't like social security. he's bone on in this campaign to -- he would raise the retirement age he would lower the benefit. on august 13, 2011, he said medicare was constitutional. since that time, he has in fact voted several times to voucherrize medicare. it arm wrestle with them for coverage and whether their claims will be paid. i believe we can lower the deficit and debt but we will not do it, we should do not do it at the expense of these program programs for seniors. >> jonathan dine? >> welcome everybody and thank you for come out today. i want to give a big thanks for the missouri press association to host this debate. my name a jonathan dine and i'm a libertarian candidate for the united states senate. like many of you, i'm tired of the constant fighting of the republicans and democrats. beating the other team has become more important. america is now on the verge of a financial collapse and both parties are to blame with their wreckless tax, borr
than listening to that guy say the number nine. even michele bachmann knew these numbers didn't add up. >> when you take the 9-9-9 plan and you turn it upside down, i think the devil is in the details. >> oh, my god. that's the sign of the beast. where does her mind go? that's an assumption. all of this and more has taken a toll on the party. for evidence look at the pollster.com. that's right i.d. fascinating number. the number of people who identify themselves as republicans has been declining over the past six months. if you ask people, what are you? look at that, how the number has gone down dramatically. not me anymore. they've got a weak county. religious conservatives, that's part of the problem for some people. relying on a shrinking portion of the voting population, older, whiter voters who long for the good old days. they're writing off younger voters, minority voters, college educated, white women, if you will. in other words, maybe the real problem isn't mitt romney but the republican party itself. dee dee myers, joanne reed is managing editor of the grio.com. i was thinkin
that took $1 billion from bill maher. he never called sarah palin, you, michele bachmann. >> this is such a grand theater to distract from the failures of obamacare. remember, this sandra fluke rhoads to fame in a few matter of months, somebody who have been primed as a tool for the feminist left. she came to fame in order to what? pedal free birth control. this she is a standard bearer of the democratic party. >> sean: the fact she is here and how the relationship got started and then think bill maher gives $1 million to obama and called sarah palin the c-word -- >> let's distract from the real war on conservative women and let's talk about the war on pro-life democratic women. they have no voice on this platform. there are 21 million democrats out there, sean, that identify themselves as pro-life. what do they think of this abortion palosa. >> sean: you are right. they are not talking about the economy. will this be the convention where on the floor of the democratic convention, delegates boo'd god and jerusalem being the capitol. >> it's a p.r. disaster. we have seen t
michele bachmann told to act like a lady. these are ways of cutting down a female candidate and reminding the electorate that's a woman running. what are some of the extra challenges that women face running for office? >> here in lies the rub. we see more than ever a lot of younger women with the drive, the ambition, the passion and skills to run, but, you know, you're hard-pressed to find any talk about the real standards they're held to, which is really how they look, how they act. standards at that frankly men don't necessarily have to adhere to. we want more candid moments in the last presidential election, hillary clinton told a reporter she felt there was a double-standard. barack obama just had to pop out of bed, jump out of shower and throw on a suit and he was ready to go. she had a lot more prep work to be done before she was camera-ready. the bottom line is women are held to a different standard, and that can be tough. >> talk about running for office, the barack obama and hillary clinton thing. barack talked about that he wears one or two suits so he doesn't think about what t
'donnell later coached mitt romney and michele bachmann. they spent hours trying to replicate debate moments. >> you have the candidate stand in front of a podium like this as realistic as possible? >> yeah. you want a strong bearing, erect. look at colin powell. he commands the podium. it's like this. >> it's about making sure that you fill the stage more than your opponent does. >> the candidates practice debating stand-ins. for obama, john kerry's plays romney. rob portman plays obama. >> you never see videotape of this, not even pictures. >> no. there's a reason why. you don't want to show those vulnerable moments. >> we don't want to give away any component to our prep. >> in the 2000 campaign, one of mckinnon's secretaries gave prep video to the gore campaign. >> gore campaign went straight to the fbi. >> what happened to her? >> she went to prison for a year. >> what's so secret? i pretended to be a candidate. limited government -- >> just limited government. what kind of limits are you talking about? can you be specific. >> yes, i can list cuts. >> would you cut defense? >> so you're
night. >> this is somebody who does make michele bachmann look like a hippie. he is that far on the fringe. >> let's bring back our roll call. lynn sweet, good afternoon to both of you. >> and good afternoon. >> let me start with you. here is the thing. on the outside looking in, you would think that akin would have been dead in the water after his first incident. what is happening here? what are we missing about missouri? >> well, missouri is a conservative state, first of all. claire mccaskill only won by a couple of points, a pretty slim margin anyway six years ago. but also the obama campaign, the national campaigns are not playing here at all. which means the senate race is pretty much one of the biggest games in town. when you have that kind of dynamic, interesting things can happen. a couple of reporters were out there this week and noted there were signs of life in the akin campaign. i've talked to a couple of republicans say they have seen internal polls still trailing, but within a couple points of her. >> lynn, about a month ago, it seemed all republicans were runn
range. michele bachmann -- i do not know what it necessarily tells you, but it is sort of a fun thing to look at. it does provide you links to every single fact check that i or my colleagues have done for the candidates. >> excuse me. >> good morning. david, george mason university. i think we have seen in the campaign so far that both candidates are in the position of being challenged. flip-plopped positions. i have noticed so far that both governor romney and president obama, when challenged by a voter or a journalist, it is not to say, "well, the facts have changed at the facts are different. the facts i look at now are not the facts that existed when that was my belief." instead, there are levels of equivocation or bluff. i think one latino group challenged him on keeping the promise of immigration reform that he intended to make. right then and there, i was hoping the president would say, "well, the picture is different. let's look get it imperatively." instead, it was something like, "i meant i would try." why do they just cannot say that the facts have changed when it challenge
'm strong and informed. he sometimes makes michele bachmann look like a hippy. >> does this bring back this whole war on women narrative that's not repful to the republicans? >> of course it does. i have two words for todd akin. he is idiot-like. it does. it sends a message to the broader public and certainly independent voters in missouri that the republican running there is prehistoric. it brings up issues that republicans don't want to talk about right now. we want to talk about economic issues and not the issues that todd aakin keeps dragging back in. >> some folks came out for him in recent days saying the republican establishment needs to get behind him. there's indications they're thinking about it. if they did that, would that be a big mistake? >> well, it's a strategy of necessity. he's the senate slot that could bring the majority to the republicans, so they don't have a choice now because he's in the race. they're trying to save him. this is a good example of what happens when you make the wrong bet in the primaries and elect the wrong people to represent your party in the p
they flirted with this idea of nominating people like herman cain and michele bachmann. >> stephanie: clint eastwood talking to a chair was the speech of the convention. how sad is this? 20% of viewers rated eastwood's bizarre speech as the high light, compared 17% for mitt romney, and 9% for paul ryan. >> their convention was so negative and such an attempt to actually introduce this guy who has been running for president for ten years. this convention paints a story of the president and first lady while connecting the policies. >> stephanie: i really wanted to say, this is how you do a convention. >> that's the way you do it. >> stephanie: and he did it with such charm and humor, in a way -- it was devastating. >> it was an indictment absolutely. and so much better than george w. bush's speech in tampa. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: you almost can't wait to here what they are saying in the right-wing world, because you are like really? dana lohse -- who was it -- was like i didn't think -- he was not at his best? really? well, you better hell hope he doesn't get any bet
flustered and said he was dating michele bachmann -- >> wow. >> stephanie: sorry, that was a proud toian slip. >> yeah, i don't think he particularly sharpened up doing that. you'll forgive me someone is trying to call me on my other line. >> stephanie: it's got to be a bigger name than me. love you charlie pierce -- >> no, no no. it's probably nobody i want to talk to. >> stephanie: well, i was actually out of time. >> oh okay. >> stephanie: love you charlie pierce.

(202) 585-3885 for democrats to republicans, your number to call, (202) 585-3886. and for independence it is (202) 585-3887. first call is david, calling from rochester on the republican's line. >> caller: good morning. the big issue is jobs. as chairman 490 mentioned yesterday there are five known people on extended unemployment insurance. i offer the suggestion that the federal unemployment insurance benefits be used in conjunction with a nine, $10 per hour job to create 3 million jobs. basically that would basically at no cost. that will put $600 million a week into the economy. would've been any comments from either mr. ryan or governor romney on this concept? family next, charles, west palm beach on the democrat line.
. ladies and gentlemen, please welcome michele bachmann! [cheers and applause] ♪ >> god bless you. what a wonderful morning. good morning. thank you for that warm introduction. it is always an honor and a thrill to be back at the values voter summit. i want to thank tony perkins, the great people at f.r. c. before i start, i want to say a word about this concept you have heard about called "the war on women," the so-called war on women. i want to say it has about as much reliability and truthfulness as bill clinton's arithmetic. but this week, as we have seen to our horror, there is a very real war that is going on across the world, and that's what i want to take my few moments together that we have this morning. i sit on the intelligence committee. we deal with the nation's classified secrets, and this is a very real issue. and as we survey the political landscape today, it feels like it is deja vu all over again. because we are seeing struggles all across the middle east. we're seeing attacks on our embassy, in a way that we saw in the late 1970's. staggering unemployment. you would a

, if you go back to pampa, i saw gingrich on stage, i saw santorum on stage. i saw michele bachmann and herman cain. >> yeah. this was, if anything, tampa was a celebration of republican unity but joe is right that for every convention when you have a challenger who has gone through a primary you do have to go through this process. let's not forget in 2008 at the democratic convention 40% of democrats still wanted hillary clinton to be their nominee. >> that's right. >> that was significant division. and obviously it didn't really hurt barack obama all that much. bill: to both of you in the 30 seconds left, todd, does this make a difference and how much of a difference united versus divided or division or unity however you want to define it, how does that play out in '64 days? >> it would make a significant difference if it were true but it is not true. the fact is republicans are overwhelmingly united behind mitt romney. democrats are overwhelmingly united behind barack obama. bill: joe, give you the last word. >> whatever divisions there are they will be unified by the republican

an autograph to michele bachmann. so he was a huge hit on the house floor and now that he's returned. >> bill: yeah, right. >> any extra campaign money. never hurts. >> it was a real circus when he showed up because people only had about 20 or 30 seconds at a time and he's walking between the house floor and the private room so all of the press wanted to get something from him and the reporters were tripping over banisters and chairs, cameramen's lens popped right off and flew in the air. it is a real wild time with paul ryan power walking through the house last week. >> bill: i saw congressman charlie wrangle at a reception last week, the evening of paul ryan's triumphant return to the house and charlie was telling me that when he walked in, all of the republicans are -- they stand, they're applauding, they walked down to the well. they're applauding and charlie walked right down there with them and paul ryan spotted charlie wrangle and said what are you doing here and charlie says no, no, no, i want to thank you, too.

!" -- "drink it!" michele bock men had just won the iowa straw vote-vote- michele bachmann had just won iowa sraw vote. it says "what did i do last week and?" "led the honeymoon commence." it is fun to have this levy elephant. this is one thing that drives me nuts. bloomberg and the city council voted that he was right and they outlawed big drinks. you have bloomberg floating down as mary compensating "drop it, chubs!" this is when donald trump endorsed mitt romney. he is saying "you had me at i don't care about poor pepole." "we must consider deep cuts to the $70 billion green defense budget." "and it was working so well." "strike the solar panels." this primary season was one of the most interesting because they did not want mitt romney. did they want to rick santorum? really? "something like this could make a lesser fella question his inevitability." this was the front-runner, mitt. steve is sort of right of center, would that be fair? he gave a great endorsement. a lot of people in the republican party really question the sky. he is in michigan. do you remember this?

for missing and exploited children, i mean, this is somebody that makes michele bachmann look like a hippy. >> good line, by the way, congratulations. >> he is very much in a group of people that would never be part of the compromise that we need to find to address the fiscal cliff. he would never be part of the group in the middle that actually figures out ways to solve these problems, that works across the aisle, is willing to be. he can say all he wants about a voting record, but it is absolutely uncon troe vermontable from 1 to 100, i am number 50 from liberal to conservative. that means impart of the middle that wants to work for compromises and do the right thing to move the country forward. todd is going to be part of the fringe caucus that wants to convince everyone that the whole issue is that the government is the enemy, and it's not the answer, government is not the answer but it's not the enemy. >> so senator, the congressman said you did vote with barack obama 98% of the time. is that an accurate number? >> depends which year, as you know, joe, some of these look at confirmati
and romney, they are both in the two range. michele bachmann -- i do not know what it necessarily tells you, but it is sort of a fun thing to look at. it does provide you links to every single fact check that i or my colleagues have done for the candidates. >> excuse me. >> good morning. david, george mason university. i think we have seen in the campaign so far that both candidates are in the position of being challenged. flip-plopped positions. i have noticed so far that both governor romney and president obama, when challenged by a voter or a journalist, it is not to say, "well, the facts have changed at the facts are different. the facts i look at now are not the facts that existed when that was my belief." instead, there are levels of equivocation or bluff. i think one latino group challenged him on keeping the promise of immigration reform that he intended to make. right then and there, i was hoping the president would say, "well, the picture is different. let's look get it imperatively." instead, it was something like, "i meant i would try." why do they just cannot say that the facts
jobs. todd has worked closely with michele bachmann, and together them and a few others have really pushed things that would really harm missouri families. on march 8th of 2011, todd akin said i don't like social security, i think it's a bad investment. he's gone on in this campaign to delineate what is the triple whammy to social security. not only does he not like it, he would privatize it, put it on the roller coaster of wall street. he would raise the retirement age, and he would lower the benefit. on august 18th of 2011, he said medicare was unconstitutional. and since that time he has, in fact, voted several times to voucherrize medicare, to turn seniors over to private insurance companies, to arm wrestle with them for coverage and whether their claims will be paid and make them go in their pocket for more than $6,000 a year. i believe we can lower the deficit and debt, but we will not do it, we should not do it, we cannot do it at the expense of these important programs for seniors. >> moderator: jonathan dine. dine: want to give a big chance for the missouri press associatio
minnesota congresswoman tea party darling michele bachmann opens up her mouth i either kring or laugh -- cringe or laugh out loud. how can somebody who is so out of touch with mainstream america, somebody who's so ignorant who's so dangerous be a member of the u.s. house of representatives? many people were hoping that after her disastrous presidential run that ms. bachmann would fade quietly into the background. well i'm sorry to tell you she has no intention of going anywhere. she is running for re-election. this despite the fact she barely held on to her seat in 2010. she actually spent almost $12 million that year. more than any other congressional candidate in the country and she won with just 52% of the vote. tonight we want to introduce you to the brave soul who is running against michele bachmann! >> we start at american motels with $2,000 in savings. >> times were tight with two young kids. >> we worked hard. >> we were blessed. >> it is time we help the middle class succeed, too. that's why i'm running for
